Vegetable Meat Loaf(Phase 1 okay)

1 med fresh tomatoe or 1/2 cup tomato juice
1 med onion, cut in pieces
sprig of parsley
1 stalk of celery, cut in pieces
small amount of green pepper
1 carrot, cut in pieces
Place tomato or tomato juice into blender first. Push down on tomato to release juices so that blender blades will turn easily.
Add egg and blend for a few seconds.
Add remaining vegies and blend until fairly smooth.
Empty blender contents in bowl and mix well with ground beef(raw not cooked).
Season with salt and pepper.
Form mixture into a loaf and place in a shallow pan.
Spread homemade quick ketchup
Bake in 350 oven for about 1 hour
2 cups tomato juice
1-3 tbsp white vinegar
honey to taste

Mix all ingredients except sweetner and simmer on stove until thick, stirring often to prevent sticking.
When almost the desired thickness, add sweetner to taste and complete cooking.
Ladle into sterilized jars and seal immediately or place in small containers and freeze.
Baked Acorn Squash(My son's favorite)
1 acorn squash
a little honey
grated orange rind(1/4 teaspoon for each squash half)
Cut acorn squash in half and use 1/2 squash for each serving. Scoop out seed cavity of each squash half.
Place cut side down on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 until a dull knife goes through squash easily(45-60 minutes depending on squash size)
Turn face up and dot with butter(if you can tolerate butter, we skip this part) honey, and grated orange rind. Return to oven and bake another 15-30 minutes at 350.
This recipe may be used as a substitute for potato chips or when something crispy is desired.
Using a potato peeler, make curls out of about 3 carrots.
Deep fry in oil until they turn golden brown.
Drain in al colander or strainer. Refrigerate oil for next batch.(Do not use oil more than 3 times as it may become rancid.)
Turn carrot curls onto a paper towel and pat dry.
Salt to taste.
French Fried Turnips
1 medium-sized yellow turnip, peeled
1/3 cup veg oil
Cut turnip into pieces the size of french fries.
Pour oil into large pan and place cut turnip pieces into pan.
Rub oil over surfaces of turnip pieces.
Bake in hot oven 400 for about 1 hour or until turnips are well browned and cooked through. You can also pan fry them(cut into pieces like potatoes)
